It is my goal to continue working with individuals, couples and families to reach their full potential by implementing necessary structure,             communication, and change.

I have the experience, education and training which allows me to provide outstanding support to the families I serve.  I am dedicated to working with children and their families affected with  special needs, including but not limited to       Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, Conduct and Mood Disorders.  I was part of the Education system (public and private) both as a Special Education Teacher and by Establishing and Directing a   Non-Public School for Children with Autism. I have written and implemented over one hundred (100)  Individual Education Plans (IEP’s).  I worked for the County of San Diego, California providing both individual and group counseling for documented gang members.  I have provided staff trainings, consultation and run groups for several School Districts and County  Organizations.

My undergraduate degree was obtained at the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor’s degree in Special Education, Mild to Moderate, K-12.
